The University of Missouri’s Missouri Drone Journalism program is offering a workshop on Saturday, Oct. 8, to provide education on the use of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) for journalists.
According to the university, the one-day seminar will focus on rules and regulations, trends on the use of UAS in journalism, videography techniques, and steps on becoming a remote pilot. In addition, it will offer two hours of hands-on exercises, where the class will travel to the Mid-Missouri Radio control airfield to practice flying with DJI Phantom 1 drones.
The seminar will be open to students enrolled at the Missouri School of Journalism at no cost. Additionally, the public can attend the event for $195.
